    It was my first time here. It is better to call first and make reservations, could be a long wait! Ramen was definitely good! Try the grilled meat(any)... All good

    Ramen comes in a bowl so big you could drown in it! Also, two words: fried oysters. Put them in your face right now!

    Wow - step into a little piece of Tokyo when eating at this insanely delicious Yakatori & Ramen house. Try the beef tongue, the Eel wrapped in omelet and the Shoyu Ramen. I can't get enough.

    The food is amazing, allow me to say this first. But their service is horrendous. Granted, I will continue to eat here, I just have vastly lowered expectations of service. The wait staff, favors men

    Awesome yakitori, best in South SD! Try the exotic stuff like beef tongue, chicken vein, and gizzards, grilled with teriyaki sauce - trust me, you will NOT be disappointed.

    Impeccably grilled meat on sticks, bowls of steaming ramen, plus the beer and sake make this Hillcrest transplant many a chefs' favorite late-night hangout. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Sign in on the list by the door if you don't have a reservation. The Nagoya ramen broth is chronic, though I could have done w/o the bamboo shoots. I wish they made pork buns!! I'd be 100% sold if so.

    If paying the bill w/multiple cards, be sure to double check name on receipts to be signed. Had friend's card charged twice on a visit and it happened again on a different occasion but we caught it.
